Barnstable Oysterfest 2013

One of the nature habitats we love on Cape Cod, and one of the places we encourage guests staying at our inn to visit, is the Massachusetts Audubon's Long Pasture in  Cummaquid. It is one of those little hidden treasures on the Cape and is such a beautiful place to visit for hiking, kayaking, and exploring the beauty of the marshes of Cape Cod Bay.

In addition to the many wonderful things to do there, On September 21st, 2013, that will be the location for the First Annual Barnstable Harbor Oysterfest. It is an opportunity to learn about the oyster farms of Barnstable and to enjoy a wonderful late afternoon event featuring tastings from some of Barnstable's great restaurants.

The event will feature oysters from Cape Cod Oysters, Wianno Oysters, and Barnstable Sea Farms. Some of the participating restaurants are the Barnstable Tavern, the Dolphin, Mattakeese Wharf, Osterville Fish Too, and the Naked Oyster. Along with the food will be Cape Cod Beer, wine, and chamber music to enjoy. The musicians are members of the Cape Cod Symphony.

Even though you may not live on Cape Cod, this is a wonderful event to enjoy while visiting and you will be supporting the efforts of the Massachusetts Audubon Society, the Barnstable Land Trust, and the Barnstable Village Civic Association. The mission of these nonprofit organizations is to protect the environment we call home for future generations of residents and visitors to this beautiful area.

The event will be held under a tent on the grounds of  Long Pasture located at 345 Bone Hill Road in Cummaquid from 3 pm to 6 pm. Tickets are $100 each and can be purchased on line from the Barnstable Oyster Fest website.
